Is the HTC Sensation Too Thin?
I love the new style and shape. They've kept with the overall mojo of the other 4.3 screen premium HTC's. BUT... what about the battery life on this phone? Would it have made sense to make this phone a few millimeters thicker and then design a slightly thicker battery for longer battery life?
How much can updated or optimized software aid in extending the useful hours of battery life? Will this phone suffer the same battery issues as the other 4.3 screen HTC's?
Note how thin this phone is in profile view:
Would you trade a few millimeters of thickness for better battery life? And I am not talking about those horrible Quasimodo inspired huge accessory back battery covers that are currently available for some of the other HTC 4.3's!

This is what adding the larger battery pack to the back of the Thunderbolt looks like. Really craptastic. Just wondering if HTC should or could come up with a larger battery that can be designed to fit into (perhaps a slightly thicker back panel) that would look more natural?
With the main complaint of the Thunderbolt/EVO/etc phones being battery life, I am just wondering if we have something better to look forward to here.

HSPA+ doesn't use any extra battery. I have a myTouch 4G and the battery life is awesome.
Personally I'd rather have a thin phone and maybe need to bring a charger or spare battery with me.Forum Rules & Guidelines -- CLICK HERE

[QUOTE=experiment626 The fact that the entire back comes off the Sensation,unlike the Thunderbolt,means a smoother extended battery cover can designed.[/QUOTE]
Does the back come off the sensation??? I thought with it being aluminum unibodied it wouldn't have a removable back panel and would have a similar set up to the legend and desire s

After a couple days with the Sensation I don't think it needs a bigger battery. Currently my phone has been off the charger for over 11 hours and has been through web browsing, twitter and facebooking while at work for 8 hours, listening to the fm radio for a little bit and I am still at a 45% charge. I have no battery concerns here.

Im sorry I got carried away with the whole Extended battery & the UniBody construction
Regarding the Sensation being too thin
I think its okay , you know its the average thickness of a cellphone
As long as its not RAZR V3 thin or Pro 7\Arrive think , it will be perfect
